Linfield 0 v 2 Celtic

I'm going to start by saying I don't want another t1t for tat pathetic point scoring exercise from people on here so anyone and I mean anyone bringing up the off field sheidt and who was right or wrong will be swiftly removed

So, a rather easy game to get us going, a few tasty tackles that were expected from both sides given the nature of the game but there wasn't a great deal of over the top physicality in it which meant we managed to escape injury free.

I thought the first half was like an attack v defence training match, we passed the ball around well and tried to get our shots off at any given opportunity. The first goal was a bit lucky but we probably deserved a bit of luck through our play in the opening 20 mins, Rogic being the standout performer and another terrific finish from the big handsome Aussie to make it 2-0.

After that we really should have been out of sight, Jozo, Lustig and Sinclair all missing good opportunities and Carrol also pulling off some excellent saves.

2nd half I didn't think we played that well, we looked as though we had an attitude of tie over, just knock it about but I'd have rather we stuck another 3 or 4 in and gave some fringe players a chance on Wednesday. As it is now, we need to score first before considering that but I think it's safe to say it will be another stroll.

I wasn't at the friendly against Lyon but a few of my mates were, glowing reviews for Kouassi and Benyu in particular which is good to see, perhaps gives us more options in there now and means if Armstrong does leave then we can allow him to do so in the knowledge we're well covered.

2nd half we had 9 academy players out on the pitch so it was no surprise to see Lyon steam ahead and win comfortably, a decent experience for the younger lads though.

Looking forward to Wednesday now, sell out crowd and a chance to watch the Hoops bang in some goals

Footballers live in that world
He seems level headed, unlike Thumb and I cannot see him as the type of player to go slow
You must play the best 11 available it has too much riding on it (like my ex)

Players employ them to maximise income they don't press gang or coerce

They are a bit slimy
But they don't exist in a vacuum
If players didn't want them they wouldn't exist
Just accept sometimes players move on
Mostly they go with my best wishes unless they feel the need to rubbish the club(any club) in some way

i think i'd be a good agent.

my player wants 40k a week and a shot of yer sexiest daughter.

and if they try and negotiate i'll start adding maws and wives.

Zach, I'm with Keny - slimy bassas the lot. If it was just making the % it would be fine but the vast majority are cutting deals that are not in the best interests of their clients in order to feather their own nests,

I promise you my in demand player A if you take diddy player B even if you don't play him and furthermore let player C go to club X.
